The Future of the LC

June 4, 2008

Well I finally finished skimming through the Library of Congress’ response to the final report of the working group on the future of bibliographic control.  Very few surprises here, the LC agreed with nearly all of the working group’s recommendations, albeit not always with a lot of enthusiasm.  The one glaring exception was of course their continued support for the development of RDA, but again that was hardly a surprise.  I’m still on the fence on the issue, but find the whole debate fairly fascinating.  If you have any interest in the matter than these are both required reading.
